It was so hard to differentiate the threat from the action. The first few were a series of spectacular theatrics; transparent well places clues bringing us all to our knees. There was something so intrinsically wrong with how we became puppets ready, willing and able to dance at the first sign of instability. The most frightening part was not the cries for help but how over time it all became less methodical and far more careless. The allegiance had shifted away from any belief in self to a calm, cool acceptance in the very nature of disease.
